My parents lived all over the world. Travelling with their families and their Air Force fathers. Their families settled in the same neighborhood. And my parents met when they were in the 9th grade. They started dating when they were seniors in high school.They went to the prom together.
They dated through college.
Went to fraternity parties together.
And my father proposed at Christmas in 1967.They were married on August 31, 1968.Surrounded by family.And they began their new life together.Today they would be celebrating 40 years of marriage. If my father had not been taken from us too soon. So, Mom. Even though the occasion is not written on the calendar anymore. I wanted you to know that I remember.
